A Book That Matters: Machiavelli’s The Prince
Knowledge Seekers will be able to craft their own answers to questions about Machiavelli’s work, The Prince. Should the ends justify the means? Should rulers convey their true beliefs or hide them? What does it mean to be Machiavellian? The Prince poses unsettling questions like these, whose answers have redefined centuries of political wisdom. Professor William Landon teaches this Great Course on The Prince. Richard Galant serves as an on-site guide helping the class decide whether the Machiavelli we think we know bears any resemblance to the Machiavelli who lived, pondered, and wrote The Prince. No class October 9.
